THREE REASONS TO BUY
At the RISI Asia Pacific Hygiene Products Symposium, SABIC unveiled an innovative new polypropylene (PP) resin product – SABIC PP 514M12 – engineered to deliver enhanced properties in melt-blown fibres for nonwoven fabrics
1 VERY GOOD PROCESSABILITY
SABIC PP 514M12 material is based on phthalate-free and odour-free technology that offers very good processability for meltblown fibres with high levels of drawability, spinnability and uniformity. The resulting nonwovens are developed to combine high barrier properties and absorption with breathability in thin and lightweight high-performance webs.
2 IMPROVED WEARABILITY
With a final melt flow rate of >1,000 g/10 min, melt-blown fibres made from SABIC PP 514M12 polymer open unique potential manufacturing possibilities for very lightweight and thin nonwovens aiming to provide improved wearability and air permeability, while maintaining very good barrier property. The polymer resin is supplied in regular pellet form.
3 GOOD PROCESSING PROPERTIES
SABIC PP 514M12 can easily be tailored to specific customer and application needs. Trials performed in collaboration with a dedicated machine manufacturer’s latest high-speed machine using production quantities of the new melt blown PP confirmed its very good processing and perfor- mance properties on pair with, or better than reference market grades.
